    What is Lion's Mane Mushroom?

    Lion's Mane, Hericium erinaceus (bearded tooth mushroom, satyr's beard, bearded hedgehog mushroom, pom pom mushroom, or bearded tooth fungus), is an edible mushroom belonging to the tooth fungus group. Native to North America, Europe and Asia it can be identified by its long spines (greater than 1 cm length), its appearance on hardwoods and its tendency to grow a single clump of dangling spines. In the wild, these mushrooms are common during late summer and fall on hardwoods, particularly American Beech.

    Lion's Mane Mushroom Benefits and Uses

    Hericium erinaceus contains a number of polysaccharides, such as B-glucan, heteroglucans, heteroxylans, as several cyanthane derivative triterpenes known as hericenone and erinacine. These latter compounds are found in the fruitbody and mycelium respectively. Hericium erinaceus has long a history of traditional use.

    Nootropics Depot has partnered with Nammex to offer these certified Organic whole fruiting body extracts, with not only testing to verify the percentage of active beta glucans, but verification that starch content is low, and that there are no pesticide residues. One of the biggest controversies in the mushroom industry today is the use of mycelium on grain extracts. Mycelium is to a mushroom like what roots are to a tree. When grown properly, they will form whole fruiting bodies; which are called mushrooms. However, to save money, most US producers of mushroom extracts today grow the mycelium on a bed of grain, like rice. To speed up production, and to make the end product cheaper to produce, these manufacturers grind up the mycelium and grain together, before allowing them to form whole fruiting bodies. The issue with that is that mycelium is not a mushroom, just like the roots of a tree are not a tree. The beneficial compounds in these mushroom species are all studied with relation to their fruiting bodies. The FDA even states that mycelium is not allowed to be called "mushrooms." However, many of the biggest brands today thwart that FDA guideline, and put out a cheaply-made, mislabeled, and ultimately inneffective products. They hide this fact by standardizing to "polysaccharides" instead of "β-Glucans." Well guess what shows up as polysaccharides in the traditional testing? Carbohydrates! Yes, the very carbohydrates from the rice used to grow the mycelium is used as a measure of the active ingredient in these substandard extracts. When you are buying one of the major mushroom extracts on store shelves today, you are buying a bunch of ground up rice mixed in with mycelium! It's a scam! This is why we decided to partner with Nammex. We are selling only certified Organic whole fruiting body extracts, which have been tested for not only the active β-Glucans, but to ensure the starch content is low; to prove what you are getting is actual mushroom, not ground up rice. You will know right away how big of a difference it is. You can even go to the store right now, and pick out one of the major mushroom brands. Mix the "mushroom" powder into some water, and ad a drop of iodine. It will quickly turn a dark purple/blue, indicating high amounts of starch. You'll immediately see how big of a scam it is, and just how many "trusted" brands are in on it!

    1. Highly Satisfactory Product

      I have been taking my LION'S MANE (HERICIUM ERINACEUS) WHOLE FRUITING BODY MEDICINAL MUSHROOM EXTRACT POWDER for well over two weeks now, and I can definitely feel a noticeable difference in my overall mental clarity.

      It is also really "tasteless" and goes really well with my lunchtime green smoothies.

    2. Great product, good price, good shiping costs to Canada

      This is a high quality product, tastes great, was shipped quickly for cross border shipping and the costs were very good, I highly recommend the product and this company. on 10th Jun 2017

    3. great stuff

      hey i mix some in my coffee & makes for good day on 19th Apr 2017

    4. Yay

      This is a high quality product, which can even be tasted and smelled. I love the natural fragrance of this powder. Lion's Mane seems to be a rather subtle nootropic, but I have definitely noticed a some cognitive enhancements after supplementing 1/4 teaspoon daily for several weeks. It has made a great addition to my stack.

      I am a huge fan of Nootropics Depot and will continue to purchase from them. The degree of customer service and product care is beautiful.

    5. Works well, doesn't taste like ass

      PC's Lion's Mane powder I bought in the past tasted really really bad and not all like fresh "fruiting bodies". I have harvested and eaten fresh Lion's Mane before in the PNW and this stuff tastes exactly like the wild mushroom!

      I really like the (subtle) effects - a calm increase in clarity and desire to learn. Effects for me are similar in nature and magnitude to starting up fish oil after a break. I did not have a super delayed onset as some mention; the effects were noticeable beginning on the second day. I recommend this over -racetams all day long. Goes well with NSI-189...

    6. Great

      Will not buy from anyone else. Nootropics depot definitely has the best quality. One of the most effective supplements I've taken. on 31st Oct 2016

    7. As someone with cognitive impairments, this is helping.

      So far, I have felt much clearer headed, more in touch with my emotions, and enhanced mood. I would be interested to know how this product will impact me after a several months of use. on 26th Sep 2016

    8. I was skeptical, but I think it works

      It is hard to evaluate this because of the long action and the other supplements I have been experimenting with. on 8th Sep 2016

    9. Wow!

      I really love this new lions mane extract. I really like the old 10:1 version, but decided to try this one after reading through their blog post. I am glad I did. Lions mane does take a week or two to build up in your system, and this extract is no different. However, I notice my memory and mood improving on it, and just feel all around healthier when taking it. I've since started trying other mushroom extracts, and will review those as well. But I will definitely keep this a part of my daily routine. on 25th Jun 2016

    10. Great for Nerve Regeneration

      After a turbinectomy surgery, my nose started to feel hollow/empty because the nerve endings were cut off. After using this product for a month, I can clearly say that there's progress. Maybe not a miracle but I'm getting there. Would suggest anyone with peripheral nerve injuries. on 1st Jun 2016
